Large windows are certainly on-trend right now and with good reason. Natural light and unforgettable views are a must-have in the realm of luxury.
Floor to ceiling windows let in light to make a home feel spacious and bright, giving a property a contemporary look. But every window needs the right dressing, which is why Blinds Online, Australia’s largest online made-to-measure blinds retailer, has developed a host of new and original solutions to make your big windows as beautiful as can be.
Accentuating the look of big, modern windows requires a contemporary design statement. Blinds Online has developed a brand new collection of S-Fold curtains that does just that. Simple, sophisticated and stylish, their gentle waves provide a neat, uniformed finish perfect for the modern home. Pulling back effortlessly to a small stack they also allow lots of light to come flooding through larger windows. Made to measure and delivered to your door, complete with their very own track, they’re an incredibly cost-effective solution.
Another brand new addition to the collection, Blinds Online’s DuoLight and DuoShade Max honeycomb pleated blinds are the ultimate big window solution. These blinds are available in a sophisticated cotton white fabric in block-out for superior shading or light filtering for a soft glow. Specially designed honeycomb pockets also trap the heat to negate the draughts that large windows can create, making rooms blissfully cool in the summer and cozy during winter.
Maintaining privacy can be tricky when dealing with large panes of glass, but Blinds Online has an innovative new solution. Their collection of double roller blinds combines a modern palette of on-trend block-out fabrics with complementary magic screen voiles all on the same roller blind mechanism. Two blinds in one for letting in light and preserving privacy at the same time.
Now available in even bigger sizes, Blinds Online has a collection of smart, elegant and beautifully crafted plantation shutters. Made from real timber and advanced polymer, they’re lightweight and easy to care for. Their polymer shutters are waterproof making them perfect for kitchens and bathrooms, while in bedrooms and street-facing windows their timber shutters make a stunning design statement and provide plenty of curb appeal. They offer easy light control, are thermally dynamic and help maintain privacy.

Reminiscent of traditional Japanese architecture, the Zen Roller is an innovation in the roller shade product category.
The Zen Roller is reminiscent of Shoji screens, which in Japanese architecture function as room or window dividers; these traditional screens are made from a wood or bamboo lattice lined with thin, translucent paper made from delicate materials such as papyrus or rice paper.
The Shade Store found inspiration in the Shoji screens to create a new category of roller shades, sourcing a fibrous material that invokes the same organic texture and translucent effect, but is highly durable, allowing the Zen Roller shade to accommodate daily use in residential and commercial settings.
“I discovered the concept for this product traveling in Europe, and was astonished that nothing like it was available in the United States,” says Ian Gibbs, co founder and chief creative officer of The Shade Store. “For the past few years, we’ve worked tirelessly with our production team to create a shade that achieves the same artistic, modern aesthetic but remains highly functional for everyday life.”
The design features panels of textured, light filtering material joined by thin strips of material that can be customized with either a satin nickel or wood finish to match other decor elements or finishes within a room. The Zen Roller is available in four materials with 11 colorways total, reflecting a variety of natural colors, earth tones, and cool grays and blues.
The Zen Roller can also be customized with motorization, allowing for state-of-the-art programmability across iOS, Android and smart home devices.
“We are proud to offer this innovative product to the U.S. market for the first time, expanding our popular roller shade category to include a unique, new offering for our customers,” Gibbs says.
